The Proletarian Soviet Republic of Vulga is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Bordiga with a fair hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, soft-spoken computers, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 7.821 billion Vulgans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Volgograd. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Vulgan economy, worth a remarkable 1,984 trillion Vuls a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 253,686 Vuls, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Wilderness-dwelling hermits are surprised to find railway stations on their front doorsteps, crowded passenger trains are near-silent save for the soft tap of fingers on touchscreens, town nameplates frequently raise giggles from passing tourists, and scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes. Crime is totally unknown. Vulga's national animal is the Honey Badger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Vulga is ranked 232,004th in the world and 831st in The Communist Bloc for Most Armed, with 0.11 Weapons Per Person.
